Regeneration DPF/cat delete

I've had my f250 6.7 for 2 months and recently it seems to be regenerating every 75 miles. Very annoying and killing my gas mileage. Installed dpf and cat delete pipe and I'm getting ready to install the xrt pro. Hopefully all works well. The worst part so far was pulling off the rubber hangers from the dpf/cat. There was a lot plug connectors and one hose connector, all easy disconnects.

Spray some lube on the hangers prior to removal. Makes things much easier.

Just took it for a test drive and with no power added it runs better, at mild and wild the truck just rips. Haven't tried the hot setting yet. Currently running in mild, still huge difference.

Finally did a calculated mileage. My mileage improved from 15ish mpg to 18.8 mpg just local driving and about 50 miles towing #14000 5th wheel (total around 400 miles). Very happy about that.
